When you use a USB drive you can install any number of packages.
Not exactly, you need enough spare memory and/or swap space, because
they get installed into 'memory'.
set your test-day.rpm to Require: openoffice and people could do so.
Most people couldn't as they'd run out of RAM.
The fact that the organizers specified an installed system was required
is the reason I didn't bother spinning live images for this test day, it
seemed pointless given that fact.
We do still spin test day live images when they are useful/required. For
some events, though, we just link to the latest nightly live image, when
there's no need for any customization for the test day.
